Dante really knows this territory and his affection for the material is very apparent. The scene's cultural knowledge recalls Chuck Jones in the best way. These characters just seem hollow copies at best and, at worst, they're bizarrely out-of-character. Timothy Dalton, as usual, is flawless and if you look closely, you can actually see how closely Fraser and Dalton look alike. The loudest may have been Daffy Duck, who is a major player in this film. Think about all the things that could have gone wrong.
She generally does pretty well. The fact is, after seeing this film I didn't want to see the next Batman movie, or suffer through the Scooby Doo sequel, or shudder shop at Wal-Mart any more than I did before the previews ended. On the bad side, I found the film too loud, which is no surprise since cartoons tend to be that way. Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are up to their feuding ways again. Bugs and Daffy return to Earth, where Daffy discovers the whole adventure was staged to make a film. At the Louvre, they discover that the card contains a viewing window, and looking through it, the window reveals that the Mona Lisa has a map of hidden beneath.
Some of these reviews are from people who just didn't get it, and those reviews I can brush off. Maybe I'm the exception rather than the rule, but I think companies who pay to have their products in movies are, for the most part, wasting their money. Everything is rounded out with some nice special effects, and a zippy music score by the ever-reliable Jerry Goldsmith, who manages to beautifully integrate several classic Carl Stalling and Raymond Scott cues. Joe Dante has always been hit and miss outside of the Gremlins films, but this is way up there with Gremlins 2 as his masterpiece. The voices might not be quite the same. I still slightly prefer Billy West's Bugs voice in Space Jam to Joe Alaskey's, but this is a minor quibble.
Drake Brendan Fraser who happens to be the son of famous movie spy Damian Drake Timothy Dalton. There are inherent dangers in taking characters that were, after all, short subjects, and expanding them into a 90-minute movie. I, like so much of America's population, grew up watching Looney Tunes. It was difficult trying to convince them that you don't just bring in 25 gag writers and try to write a joke that's short enough to put in somebody's mouth. Sad there will probably not be another large scale Looney production after this, but we have this one to treasure.
Like all great cult films, it will probably take some time for it to be discovered, but fans will keep it alive. Then the animators would go to work and put characters into the frame. It's more occasionally amusing than consistently funny. She doesn't even try to give a good performance. For that reason, I would recommend this film for classic movie fans.
References to old films and characters are everywhere. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a couple of other beloved animated characters owned by Time-Warner these days. Chairman of the equally nefarious Acme Corporation. Daffy Duck finally has enough of playing second fiddle to Bugs Bunny, he quits the Hollywood studio and teams up with Bobby Delmont Brendan Fraser an ex-stuntman; together they go on a mission to rescue Damian Drake Timothy Dalton a spy who has been captured by the evil chairman of the Acne corporation Steve Martin With strong comic performances from Brendan Fraser, Steve Martin and Jenna Elfman, plus everyone's favourite Looney Tunes, this film is a good laugh for the whole family, and the blend between cartoon and real life is the best i have seen. It's unfortunate this little gem of a flick has been gobbled up in the busy holiday release schedule, but fans should be pleased this film was made at all and will be able to own and enjoy it in the near future. The movie twists the legends of the Warner stable while still honoring their personalities, and as such the movie works as both an homage to and a wink-at-the-audience spoof of the classic cartoons.
She started off great in Looney Tunes searching for Daffy Duck to get him back to the studio, because her job depended on it. Think about all the things that could have gone wrong. The Looney Tunes are all 'off' to me, a huge fan of the original cartoons. The one exception to the general sloppy anarchy is a wonderful sequence with Bugs and Daffy chasing through the Louvre, into painting after painting after painting most of them not at the Louvre, but so what. There isn't much in a way of an acceptable or even decent plot, actually, but don't let that deter you since that's precisely the reason why any attempt to fit the Looney Tunes gang into a full-length film would flounder.
I know he's overacting for the sake of being funny. Daffy is still delightfully conceited and selfish, though in a nice change of pace he is actually allowed to be heroic at some points. He does anything but play it safe, and ends up with a memorable, if not a little eccentric performance. Space Jam was funny and pretty good. However, the opening, middle, and end of the film are different from what Dante envisioned. It was a chore to sit through the entire movie.
